JEAN LILES is leaving Towcester to join the training ranks at Central Park with immediate effect.
Barry Stanton, the Kent track’s consultant, said: “We’re delighted Jean has decided to join us. I’ve known her and her partner Colin for a number of years and of course we worked together at Crayford so I know that she will bring commitment, enthusiasm and a good spread of greyhounds that will compliment our growing racing strength.
“I’m sure she’ll prove an asset to Central Park.”
For her part Liles commented: “I’ve enjoyed my time at Towcester but Central Park offers us a greater choice of distances which suits my kennel better. Having met [promoter] Roger Cearns I appreciate his family history in greyhound racing and the hard work he has put into making Central Park one of the best galloping tracks in the industry.
“I’m looking forward to the challenge and I’m grateful for the total support of my owners in this move.”
Stanton added that Central Park may look to make another appointment in due course as it targets the return of occasional, once-monthly, Saturday evening meetings.
